Independent Financial Partners
Independent Financial Partners is a financial advisory organization that supports a broad network of truly independent financial advisors throughout the U.S. We have grown from nine advisors to a network of over 400 professionals who serve the specialized needs of affluent clients.
The advisors of IFP are part of the LPL Financial “hybrid” program, which allows them to maintain their independent SEC-registered Registered Investment Advisor, (RIA), and custody fee-based assets at Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade or LPL Financial. This hybrid affiliation provides us with the extensive resources that LPL Financial offers, but allows us to maintain true independence in how we service our clients.
Each IFP advisor runs and owns his or her own business and will generally brand his or her practice using a DBA, the IFP name, or as an LPL Financial branch. The branding decision is made individually by the advisor, and IFP’s role is to support the advisor in a number of different ways by providing additional value-added services from a local perspective that enhances the advisor’s ability to serve their clients’ best interests.
With over 400 advisors located throughout the United States, IFP has earned the distinction as the largest advisory group at LPL Financial. Collectively, advisors of IFP manage over $2.5 billion in individual client assets, and $32 billion in retirement plan assets.
